Within Our Gates




Within Our Gates was produced and directed by Oscar Micheaux in 1919. He is considered to be the first African-American director of feature films and this is the first such film still in existence.
I found the plot difficult to follow, and he does not give full play to the "money" scenes at the conclusion but it is certainly of historic interest.


Run time 77 minutes 4 seconds

Thank you for posting this very important film! I am a research assistant for an historian who would like to include an image from the film in an upcoming publication. We need to check permissions and original source. Could you please list where the original source is from, so I can contact that repository?
